For over 19 years now, REACH for Uganda and our sister organization in Uganda, the Arlington Academy of Hope, have worked hard to lift education standards in eastern Uganda. Our two primary schools have an enrollment of over 800 students each year, providing untold opportunities for hundreds of kids who would otherwise not have a chance to advance. Students who complete our primary school program travel to boarding schools far away to continue their education. Our dream since we started has been a secondary school or high school of our own, in our region, so our kids can complete the equivalent of a K–12 education before we release them to college. Today, that dream is closer to reality.


In 2021, USAID awarded us an $800,000 grant for the construction of a secondary school of our own. Our leadership team and major donors have pledged $900,000 toward construction costs. Our budget for the first construction phase is $2.7 million, which means we are almost 68% there. We now need to raise $1 million to complete this first phase.


We appreciate any amount of support to reach this goal! Our environmental and monitoring plans were approved by USAID and our team has selected a construction firm. Our President, Dick Burk, is in Uganda ready to sign a construction contract. Your generous support will help provide a secure, permanent learning place for our students and ensure that the academic excellence we have introduced at primary school continues through secondary school.


Making this dream a reality is a team effort that will involve all of our longtime supporters. No amount is too small or large and all donors will receive a personal letter of thanks. If you can organize a small fundraiser around this project, please do. We look forward to hearing your creative fundraising and outreach ideas in the coming months. Please check our website for all the different ways to give. We will also be sending out more detailed information by mail to all our supporters in the next month or so.

Top donors will be recognized in the names of our buildings and classes. You can get a whole building named after you or
your family for $250,000, a floor for $100,000, and a classroom for $50,000. For lower amounts, your
name will grace our Wall of Honor.
Please join our march forward today with a special donation on this website - https://reachforuganda.reachapp.co/campaigns/the-building-of-the-arlington-secondary-and-vocational-school
